World Nutella Day – celebrating one bite at a time

Before we get to the good stuff, I want to share a little bit of my morning with you.  I love, love, love when the hubster is home on the weekends.  Why, you might ask?  Well of course because he spoils me I love him!

This is what I had waiting on me upon awakening this morn – a warm fire and hot coffee 🙂

On to more exciting things….

I topped my French toast with a good smear of chocolate coconut cream I had left over in the fridge (heated for a few seconds), strawberries, and a small drizzle of maple syrup – I mean what is French toast without maple, right?

*I first discovered coconut cream on HEAB.  It.is.so.friggin.good.  I mixed 2T coconut flour with 1/8 cup almond milk, add a few bittersweet chocolate chips and place in microwave for 15 seconds.  Stir well to melt chocolate.  You now have chocolate coconut cream!*
